Chandigarh, Dec 7 (UNI) The Haryana Government has sanctioned a sum of Rs 50 crore for the promotion of tourism in Haryana in a big way.
This was stated by Minister of State for Tourism Kiran Choudhry while talking to the mediapersons at Panchkula today.
She said Haryana was a pioneer state in the country to start highway tourism and former Chief Minister Bansi Lal was the main instrument behind promoting highway tourism in the state.
To a question, Mrs Choudhry said during the Geeta Jayanti celebrations at Kurukshetra the foundation stone of a 57 tonne chariot of Lord Krishna would be laid.
